    An easy to use advanced function that will remaster (create) bootable Windows ISO files. The only required parameter is the media path which is the location of the Windows installation media content that will be remastered into an ISO. This allows for easy pipeline processing by simply typing "Path to Media" | New-ISO

    A PS Custom Object is then returned upon the creation of the ISO that displays the ISO Name, the ISO Label, the path the ISO was saved to, and a Boolean value signifying whether the ISO prompts the user during boot-up or not.




    Function New-ISO
            Create a new remastered bootable Windows Installation Media ISO.
            This function remasters and creates bootable Windows Installation Media ISO files automatically without having to input the paths to the Windows ADK boot files.
            It does this by querying the registry keys that contain the path the Windows ADK is saved to, and then creating absolute paths to any required boot files for ISO creation.
        .PARAMETER MediaPath
            The full path to the Windows media content to be remastered into a new ISO.
        .PARAMETER SavePath
            An optional full path to the location where the new remastered ISO is to be saved.
        .PARAMETER ISOName
            An optional name of the new ISO file. If no name is supplied, the media name will be used.
        .PARAMETER ISOLabel
            An optional label for the new ISO file.
        .PARAMETER BootType
            Will create an ISO that prompts for user input upon boot-up, or an ISO that starts automatically with no user prompt.
            The default setting is no user prompt
            PS C:\> New-ISO -MediaPath "D:\WIN_10_PRO_WORKSTATIONS_17763.194" -SavePath "D:\" -ISOName "Win 10 Pro for Workstations" -ISOLabel "Windows 10 Pro for Workstations"
            PS C:\> New-ISO -MediaPath "D:\WIN_10_PRO_WORKSTATIONS_17763.194" -BootType "Prompt"
            PS C:\> "D:\WIN_10_PRO_WORKSTATIONS_17763.194" | New-ISO
